Welsh Stores Minimum Pricing Legislation

 02nd January 2020
Colleague Discount on Alcohol – Welsh Sainsbury's Stores In Wales on 2 March 2020, new legislation comes into effect that will change how alcohol is priced. This is a legal requirement and we will need to be fully compliant. This change was adopted in Scotland in May 2018. What's changing? All alcoholic products sold in Wales will be subject to a minimum price of 50p per unit of alcohol. What does this mean for me? If you are shopping in a Sainsbury's store in Wales on or after 2 March 2020 – you will no longer be able to get colleague discount on any alcoholic products. This will make sure we do not break the law by selling alcohol below the legal minimum price. Where can I find more information? More information on minimum unit pricing can be found on the website: https://gov.wales/minimum-unit-pricing-alcohol If you have any questions regarding this change to our discount benefit for all colleagues, please call HR Reward Services on 0207 695 4227 or email HROps.Reward@sainsburys.co.uk Read more

The Company has announced that from 1st December colleagues will be able to receive 10% colleague discount at Argos stores and 25% discount at Habitat stores.

Also for our Argos and Habitat Retirees who meet the eligibility criteria they will be also eligible to continue to receive their discount at Sainsbury's.
